    Are White Vegetables Part of the Rainbow? - Nutrition Nuggets 50.

    Today, we take a question from a listener. She asks, "Are white veggies, like garlic, mushrooms and cauliflower part of the rainbow of vegetables and fruits?"

    Great question! Many people ask the same thing and wonder about the more bland colours, such as white, beige and light green vegetables and fruits.

    We discuss a variety of colours and how they fit in the rainbow.

    Ep 114. Food Security Problems and Solutions with Author Shannon Dobbs

    On today's show, we interview Shannon Dobbs, author of "The Food Waste Rescue Manifesto: 9 Mistakes in Food Rescue We Need to Stop Making Now".

    Shannon is passionate about making changes to our current food system. He has created several initiatives including programs for food waste reduction, studying the effects of food waste on climate change, and ensuring equal access to healthy fresh food for everyone, especially low income families and rural communities.

    Shannon believes there are viable solutions available, but feels more people need to be aware of the issue in order to bring about change.

    Definitely a thought-provoking interview.

    Ep 113. Eat Well to Feel Better with Mindy Yoder, RD

    Ep 113. Eat Well to Feel Better with Mindy Yoder, RD

    Many women have a goal to lose weight.....and after deeper exploration and reflection to find what's driving their reasons for wanting to lose weight, they often discover that they just want to feel better in their own body, improve their energy, help their digestion to feel less bloated, and feel better overall.


    Today, we have a conversation with dietitian, Mindy Yoder. Mindy is based in Buffalo NY, and through her private practice, helps women align their nutrition with their lifestyle and health goals. Together, they get creative to identify methods to increase the quality of their diet through simple strategies.

    Many women are frustrated with diet culture or having to stick to a plan. Mindy demonstrates how customization of meal planning for the week to fit into a specific lifestyle and schedule is really the best way to plan for healthy eating.

    Derived from a listener question, this episode will help many people in similar fast-paced, busy and hectic lifestyles to improve the quality of their diet, and help increase healthy behaviours.

    We discuss the value of food rather than points, calories or any other restrictive diet tracking.

    Episode was based on a listener question:

    “I am not great with meal planning or prepping for the week ahead and I end up just getting food delivered or going through drive though on my way home from work. Do you have some ideas to help with meals that are grab and go and is it possible to eat healthy while travelling (long commutes for work)?”

    For more information about Mindy, visit her website, or Instagram page.

    Ep 112. How to Stop Food Addiction with Dr. Vera Tarman

    Ep 112. How to Stop Food Addiction with Dr. Vera Tarman

    We know that humans can become addicted to drugs and alcohol, but can we actually become addicted to food?

    Today, we interview Dr. Vera Tarman, the author of "Food Junkies - A Recovery from Food Addiction"

    Dr. Tarman, is the medical director of Renascent, an addiction rehab centre in Toronto, and works with people struggling with a variety of substance addictions, including food.

    Evidence is mounting for the ways in which the brain responds to hyperpalatable food substances, such as food products that are high in sugar, fat and/or salt. Research is showing that these substances can trigger a brain response and cascade similar to drug addiction. The food industry however, often creates food with the intention of having it be addictive.

    We have always counselled people about learning to develop a positive relationship with food, but there may be a case of learning how to avoid certain food products that have these addictive food substances.

    Tune in to today's conversation with Dr. Vera Tarman to hear all about this controversial topic.



    Check out Dr. Tarman's blog on our website:
    Food Addiction - Sandra Gentleman

    Dr. Vera Tarman, MD, FCFP, ABAM MSc. is the Medical Director of Renascent and a senior staff physician at Salvation Army. Dr Tarman has a special interest in the clinical syndrome of food addiction and has presented at numerous public forums to educate and advocate on this subject.

    She is author of Food Junkies: Recovery from Food Addiction, and is a cohost of the popular Food Junkies Podcast.

    She is also the founder of the free Facebook group, called “I’m Sweet Enough: Sugar-Free for Life”.
